I love dressing up and wearing a full face of makeup, but life as a Mommy makes that a much bigger challenge than is worth it most days.  So, I love me some products that can achieve great results with minimal effort.  I also love me some sugar.  These are a few things on my radar right now:

I may have mentioned once or twice that I’m a mom to three amazing and wonderfully behaved children!  Who never throw up on my new bridesmaid’s dress or wig out at the grocery store or loudly ask embarrassing personal questions in church during a quiet moment!

No, of course they don’t.  I’d like to also report that they never had challenges with night wetting during the...

I received free samples from Procter and Gamble in preparation of writing this piece. This post reflects my personal opinion and was not influenced by the sponsors.

Roadtripping is not only an economical way to travel; it also presents a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in your vacation in a way that an exclusive upscale resort could never offer (i.e. knee deep in crushed Cheetos and...

I am a funny sort of traveler.  I genuinely love the process of getting somewhere almost as much as the destination itself (I know, weird right?), which is part of the reason most of our vacations involve roadtripping...

Before my baby boy was born I got a lot of advice.  I still continue to receive a lot of (unsolicited) advice.  But no one told me the following super important details I am about to share with you. You're Welcome, in advance.

1. Don't buy a nursing bra with underwire.
  Unless you like blocked milk ducts. 
The busty woman at the bra store turned me away from a really...

We're a multinational family: the Mister's from Europe, I'm Canadian, and one of our kids was born in the United States where we now live. So in addition to having more citizenships and passports than you can shake a stick at, we also have a transnational mentality of entitlement and diplomatic negotiation.

As in, "if you say no to us, we'll just ask that other country and...

Getting back into pre-baby shape is a lot harder than plain old getting fit. For one, if you're breast-feeding you are probably raging hungry and two; you have a little one who demands the majority of your time.  Sleep deprivation is a whole other topic.

I've discovered the best way to work out is if my baby can be part of it.  If you saw my recent feature in the Globe and Mail,...

Twice a week, I punish myself with a high intensity workout. My goal is simple: To get my pre-pregnancy pants on (and zipped up) without holding my breath/passing out. 

Personal Trainer Stephanie Sibbio of Think Fitness has a butt and thighs that no doubt bring her equal doses of admiration from men and cut-eye from women. For this reason I let her hurt me every Thursday morning (and then her...

If you're a parent, you know that things don't always go exactly according to Plan.

(Heck, if you're a parent, you probably tossed the Plan years ago.  I mean, let's just get real for a sec.)

Somehow we went from a strict "No Pet Household" policy to an "Okay, absolutely no more than 20 pets at once - and I really mean it this time" policy.

In truth, I'm not actually 100% on...

With the exception of the whole 9 month pregnancy thing, most women don't get to gently dip a toe into the waters of motherhood.

But most women aren't me-- the kind of woman who kind of sort of forgets her commitment to watching her darling niece and nephew for two nights while their parents go on a nice, grown-ups only vacation.

Which is how I found myself in the unlikely role of working,...
